PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds received a substantial update on Xbox One a couple of days ago that made some notable changes, like removing the starting area and greatly improving the game’s performance. However, some of the changes made in the game weren’t even mentioned in the patch notes, with players left to discover them for their own.
One of the changes not mentioned in the patch notes for the latest PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds update on Xbox One is the addition of a new vehicle. Xbox One players now have access to the jet ski, known in-game as the Aquarail. Aquarails spawn in the water in the same areas as boats, and are essentially the motorcycle equivalent when it comes to water-based vehicles.
This means that Aquarails only seat two people, but they are smaller and faster than boats. Therefore, Aquarails should make traveling by sea much quicker than it was before, and potentially safer as well, as they are harder to hit.
PC players have had access to Aquarails since December, so their addition to the Xbox One version of the game is a big step in bringing it closer to its full release. Content-wise, the Xbox One version of PUBG is still lagging behind its PC counterpart, though, mainly in the form of the desert map Miramar.
The Xbox One version of PUBG also has a lot of technical issues to iron out before it will be ready for its full release. In fact, the latest update, while fixing a lot of issues, seems to have added new glitches to the game as well. One glaring problem that fans have discovered is a new revive glitch that allows people to be revived, even if their teammates have stopped actively reviving them.
In the future, fans can expect this glitch and other issues to be fixed as the developers continue to make progress toward PUBG‘s full release on Xbox One. In the meantime, fans can head to the sea and try out the new jet skis for themselves.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is available now on PC and on Xbox One through early access.
